to equip the new immigrants with the skills they need to make it in the u.s.. for example as richard mentioned by making sure that they and their children receive effective english language instruction. we tend to talk a lot about what to do about illegal immigrants who are already here whether to provide them with what some people call the legalization and other people call amnesty and on both sides lot of the arguments or moral. one group suggesting legalization would erode the rule will fall and another saying it's the status quo that undermines the rule of law and decides that he man to lead to a humanitarian duty to regulate the status of the people who come here over the last few decades. well, my own reading of the polls is that the answer is that people give to a lot of questions depend a lot on the wording of the question which suggests to me the polls are useful for identifying some impulses that are strong in the public and not so much for finding specific policies. the impression i have is that most people are not opposing the principal to allowing people who've been here
allen is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan. was nominated to become nato's supreme commander as well. he has denied any wrongdoing. so, how are these people linked to the scandal? how are they connected? follow us. we'll try to explain this. general patreaus resigned after admitting to having an extra marital affair with paula broadwell. a friend jill kelley asked to investigate harassing e-mails see whas receiving from paula broadwell. the "wall street journal" saying the fbi agent who initiated the investigation at kelli's request is under scrutiny. the agent has not been identified but allegedly sent kelley shirtless photos of himself. started with a complaint about harassing e-mails. he here's what we know about the woman who made that complaint, jill kelley, married to a cancer surgery, she has three daughters, lived in tampa, well-known among washington social circles. they have been friends with general patreaus and his family for five years. friends describe kelley as an innocent victim about e-mails accuse kelley of flirting with patreaus. how does this impact the careers of
talk about u.s. links to the drug war and the thing that is so impossible? you have to read it in some specific story and also find a back door, some different way into it. that is always an important piece of the puzzle. >> to look at another aspect of this, and citizens, witnessing with their cameras all over the world, i found myself thinking of those, everyone from folks in syria, in homes, trying to show what they could to focus here in oakland with camera phones, trying to show police misbehaving. someone who wrestled with the question of fact of journalism, how to protect people, whether they are citizens or professional. don't really have a big conversation about that. should there be an international standard of journalistic rights were if you are committing journalism you should be protected? out you protect those folks? >> good luck implementing that law. it is a great question, something journalists struggle with all time with a rise of social media and sites you have started out as a compendium of information, shootings in streets, be heading. started off like a visual wal
's early remarks about the deadly attack on the u.s. diplomats in benghazi, libya. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration. and she's the point person, is so disconnected to reality. i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better. and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. somebody has got to start paying a price around this place. >> let's see what happens here. but we will do whatever's necessary to block the nomination that's within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. >> all right. listen to the president's very, very angry response to senators mccain and graham during that white house news conference. >> she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to g
to the u.s. it's possible you could see the end of the arab spring at that conference held at columbus university in 2008. there's a matter of the public diplomacy people coming into the state department are often shunted off into consular work for eight years or whatever, for a long time before the ever get to any public diplomacy were. it's as though you're in the military and call your officers and send them off to, i don't know, do social work and then suddenly brought them back and said now you're in charge of the squadron. well anyway, but -- >> well, thank you, ambassador. and by the way, as far as the arab spring is concerned, i know that i was personally accused by some right wing bloggers having omitted the arab spring but i wish it were true, because of this event. although the event enabled me to do. the thing that was most fun of all of all the things that it did when i was undersecretary, which was that i got to call on the egyptian ambassador. i don't know if you really does, and made them come to my office and dressing gown which is sort of a great thing you can do trad
john allen, the u.s. commander in afghanistan was on track to become nato commander until the disclosure that he was under investigation by the pentagon. jill kelley in general allen allegedly exchanged emails and documents suspected of being inappropriate. allen insisted that there was no affair. >> she complains she was getting harassing emails and lead fbi to the affair. allenn got a vote of confidence today. >> he believes he is doing and has done an excellent job. some are angry that the afghan war, costing some u.s. lives and dollars, was hardly mentioned until this. >> and now we are becoming obsessed with the sex life of the director of the cia and the commander? a bit of this just seems out of balance. >> some question the fbi's involvement. >> those certainly involving a love triangle or whatever, it should not rise to this level. >> others wonder why the federal probe had been kept from congress and the white house. >> the fbi knew all about this months ago when they apparently told nobody about it. >> parts of the broadwell-- petraeus case was so incensed. brie
, the commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan is now under investigation for alleged inappropriate communications with jill kelley. now investigators are said to be looking into the 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails and other documents that he sent to her. kelley, of course, is the florida woman whose original complaint to the fbi about threatening e-mails inadvertently exposed the affair between general petraeus and paula broadwell. meantime a team of fbi agents searched broadwell's home in charlotte, north carolina, overnight, and spent nearly five hours there wrapping up just after 1:00 in the morning. "wall street journal" is reporting that the fbi agent who launched the petraeus investigation himself is under investigation. in part because he sent shirtless pictures of himself to jill kelley. jill kelley, the woman who kicked off all of this investigation, by complaining about the e-mails that she was getting from the petraeus mistress. so the agent, who knew kelley, allegedly sent those pictures before any investigation began, but as you can see, the story is getting much mor
to be a bigger and more difficult issue and it deserves more than 10 seconds, but particularly the attacks on u.s. corporations and intellectual property is the core problem. on some national dialogue i think it's a very interesting interesting subject and a great question. i think there's a lot that could be done in the investment area and relating to that in the ipr area. it's been more successful at the subnational level than the national level. governors and china want to invest more than their national governments want to encourage it. and, perhaps you can use leverage to improve icr performance at the regional level in china which is where the real problem lies oic real possibilities here. >> please join me in thanking this terrific panel.

prosecutors from the criminal division, the environment and natural resources division, the u.s. attorney community and the many talented federal and state law enforcement agents who have worked so hard for so long to develop these cases. i would like to thank our colleagues at the securities and exchange commission for their important parallel investigation. with that i would like to turn it over now to my friend and colleague, the director of enforcement at the f.c.c. thank you. >> thank you. i'm director of enforcement at the f.c.c. today we are announcing that b.p. has agreed to pay more than a half billion dollars that it misled investigators about the rate of oil flowing during the deep water horizon disaster. the $525 million penalty represents the third largest civil penalty ever assessed and those funds will be used to compensate harmed investors for losses sustained from this fraud. b.p. misrepresented in f.c.c. filings that the oil spill flow rate was estimated to be up to 5,000 barrels of oil per day and that was the current estimate. in fact b.p. was in position of numerous a
question will go to representative berg. how would you have voted on the farm bill passed by the u.s. senate? in your view what are the necessary elements of a good farm bill? berg: certainly had said publicly. if there were the only choice i would support the farm bill. there are challenges with it. it links wetlands and crop insurance to a lot of people in north dakota. you know, my great-grandfather homestead in north dakota. i am an econ grad and i grew up in north dakota. my dad was a commissioner in agriculture is extremely important to me. what we need in agriculture and long term is we need the markets. we need the farm bill and a strong arm bill centered on crop insurance, absolutely no question that we need to ensure that open markets and a place is the price we need for a great quality crops in north dakota. the challenge we have in the house is the house ag committee pass the farm bill as well. that did not come out of the chamber and didn't come to the floor and i thought back -- fought back against republican leadership very hard on that specific thing. i worked biparti

in the u.s. economy for you? it makes no sense. they go away and compete against us rather than innovating and creating jobs here. then i took a closer look at what the republicans are actually proposing. they haven't turned the corner at all. in fact, they haven't even stepped out of their houses. they certainly didn't learn anything from the last election. the stem visa bill on the house floor this week was actually voted down in september. it was introduced with a few changes and no consultation with democrats. i want to find a bipartisan solution on immigration. i'm committed to it. i know it won't be easy. they say a journey of 1,000 miles begins with just one step. the problem is my colleagues on the other side of the aisle want to take one step and have the democrats travel the other 999.9 miles. certainly this bill isn't even a step it's a shell game. it's the same problem that the stem bill in september had. it holds visa from a legal immigration program that works over to a new visa category where there may or may not be sufficient demand to use those visas each year. immigration

of the u.s. forces in afghanistan and his nominee to lead nato. but mr. obama was silent on allen. the same f.b.i. investigation uncovered e-mails between allen and a socialite, jill kelly, who hosted functions for central command in tampa, where both petraeus and allen had worked. based on those e-mails, mr. obama placed allen's nomination to nato on hold. bob orr has our story tonight from washington. >> reporter: the career of general john allen hinges on the content of some 200 e-mails he exchanged with jill kelly. sources say allen was confronted with some of the e-mails by the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff martin dempsey. allen's attorney late today issued a statement saying general allen intends to fully cooperate with the inspector general investigators and directed his staff to do the same. allen has told officials he's done nothing wrong and has written nothing to kelly that would preclude his nomination. officials have characterized the communications with kelly as flirtatious, saying they contain nothing of an explicit sexual nature. but one official said the e- mails, i
right now some of the conventional wisdom says that u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice even though she's embattled over her comments on benghazi, she may be the favorite for that role. so you've got some trial balloons floating around here. we know there are a couple deputies to the secretary of defense who are also being considered for the role. we'll have to wait and see exactly how it plays out. >> all right, brianna keilar, you have a full plate. >> yes. >> thank you very much. >> next hour we'll get reaction to general allen now being tangled in this scandal. nic paton walsh will join us with perspective there. >> and tom fuentes from the fbi will join us to talk about all this. >> then on "starting point," a man whose own sex scandal led to his down fall, former new jersey governor jim mcgreevey. jason chaffetz will way in and debbie wasserman shultz. >> man there is a lot going on today. you might not know this man. his software might be on your computer. john mcafee wanted for questioning now in a murder case. we'll have the details. >> another bizarre one.

about intelligence failures and the agency's role in that fatal attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi. >> director pept ptraeus went t tripoli and interviewed many of the people involved. so the opportunity to get his views, i think, are very important. >> reporter: david petraeus resigned a week ago but cbs news has leaned that when he sits down before congress today he'll give testimony that the cia helped prepare. aides will be with their former director inside the hearing. >> a good thing for our country, it's a good thing for the public, it's a good thing for general petraeus. >> reporter: petraeus will explain why the cia kept a safe house near the u.s. consulate and how the agency tried to fight off the attackers in benghazi where four americans were killed. some in congress question whether pet was pressured t step down for political reasons, not personal ones. >> the only question i will ask him is general petraeus, did your resignation have anything to do with the fact that you were supposed to testify before congress? >> reporter: for three days members have heard from nati
harassing e-mails to a woman close to petraeus. according to a u.s. official, it was that probe that revealed an affair between broadwell and petraeus. director of national intelligence james clapper learned of the investigation in a phone call from the fbi on election night. clapper told the white house on wednesday according to a senior u.s. intelligence official. but it's unclear when the fbi probe began. >> the fbi director had the obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earliest date. it seems this has been going on for several months and yet now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. >> reporter: among other questions, why weren't key lawmakers told sooner. the house and senate intelligence committees weren't informed until friday. >> are you going to investigate why the fbi didn't notify you before? >> yes, absolutely. i mean, this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. >> reporter:
